NAIROBI, Kenya, April 24 (UPI) -- Four people, including two police officers, were killed Wednesday when a car bomb detonated outside a police station in Nairobi.
The bomb exploded as police were escorting the occupants of the car into the police station for questioning.
According to Inspector General David Kimaiyo, the car had been flagged down by police for driving on the opposite side of the road. "Officers entered the car to make sure suspects didn't escape. One sat in the front and the other at the back as a patrol car escorted them from behind."
One of the occupants inside the car detonated what was described as a homemade bomb attached to the car.
The policemen in the patrol car that was following the bomb-laden vehicle were uninjured.
No one has yet claimed responsibility for the attack, which occurred in Pangani district, a mostly Somali suburb of Eastleigh.
Al-Shabaab tweeted that the blast "smells like an inside job."
